5 years after the Higgs boson, the Large Hadron Collider is just getting started

It's been five years since physicists at CERN reported that they had observed a particle "consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson." The discovery capped decades of theory and was an important triu

CERN releases 300TB of Large Hadron Collider data into open access

Cancel your plans for this weekend! CERN just dropped 300 terabytes of hot collider data on the world and you know you want to take a look.

Here’s What The Large Hadron Collider Looks Like Through Google Glass

If Google is worried about Google Glass <a target="_blank" href="http://www.wired.com/business/2013/05/inherent-dorkiness-of-google-glass/">being too "nerdy"</a>, they probably wouldn't be sending peo

Tom Hanks to turn on Large Hadron Collider – yes, that Tom Hanks

<img src="http://www.crunchgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/lhc1.jpg" />I'm a fan of the movement which venerates society's unsung heroes. The nerds, if I'm honest: engineers, physicists, chemists.

Controversial paper published detailing potential new particle found at Fermilab

While I don’t have a theoretical physicist doctorate, the controversy swirling around this report indicates that someone found something important. Apparently, Fermilab scientists were 

Today in CG Comments: I am become Death, the buyer of Chanel

ML Smith of some weird blogs commented on our pithy commentary between Audrina and Audrina’s co-worker on The Hills describing the Large Hadron Collider. Instead of a reasoned debate about the r

LHC shut down for two months

The world-destroying LHC has been shutdown after a large helium leak on Friday. The two-month hiatus isn’t just to fix the leak, but rather raise the selections temperature from near absolu

End of the world delayed while Large Hadron Collider cooling problem fixed, smashing to resume next week

When it comes to running a gigantic machine capable of ripping a hole in the space-time continuum that could suck the entire earth (and more) into oblivion, it’s probably safe to assume that you can

Large Hadron Collider webcams

Obviously the world didn’t end on Wednesday when the Large Hadron Collider fired its first particle beam. The geeks at the LHC aren’t going to make anything that will kill us. They even

Linux used for Large Hadron Collider project

According to InternetNews.com, the Large Hadron Collider project that we’ve been hearing so much about runs a customized version of Linux called CernVM. Apparently it ran Vista at first, but the Aer

Large Hadron Collider picture set

The eight billion dollar LHC didn’t destroy the world last night – that’s good – so here is a great photo set that shows off the fantastic 17-mile long collider.

If you’re reading this, the world didn’t end last night

Well it looks like a world-ending black hole wasn’t formed at the site of the Large Hadron Collider and that we will, in fact, be putting in a full day of work today, tomorrow, and almost every rema

End of the world on Wednesday, take a half day today

CERN’s Large Hadron Collider will be activated this Wednesday. The LHC is a 17-mile long underground tunnel near Geneva that houses the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. Scientists use a
